I know from hosting the last 5 years of the Cancer Challenge that there are many of you that cannot wait for October 1st to begin. So, I have a little starter project just for you.
The Cancer Awareness Ribbon applique is a great add on to hats, scarves, blankets or whatever you are making. Especially if you are donating to a specific Cancer Center (breast cancer, children’s cancer, etc) because you can make it in the corresponding color.
Get Started Early with the Cancer Awareness Ribbon
A couple years ago I had someone share a photo of a hat they had made for a donation. The hat featured a Cancer Awareness Ribbon. This was such a thoughtful touch to add to a donated hat so I wanted to share it with you. The best part was that the pattern by CrochetBug is free on their blog, you can find the link HERE.
So, I encourage you to go grab some scrap yarn and your trusty crochet hook. Sit down in front of your favorite show or pod cast and whip us a handful of these awareness ribbons.
Stay tuned and Share your WorkI will be posting the daily hats on Instagram, Facebook and in my Facebook Group. Please follow each of these to stay up to date. AND I ask that you share your work by using the Hashtag #CrochetCancerChallenge in your posts! Call out your friends to join, it not only helps us pledge more hats, but makes it more fun and personal.
